Pros: "The crew on Air NZ is consistently wonderful. The entertainment and sets for domestic flights are good, but not great. For international flights, their seats and entertainment are excellent."

Pros: "The crew was very hospitable and friendly"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The corn chips!"

Cons: "The snack were very simple. They don't communicate properly all the different snack options."

Pros: "Great entertainment"
Cons: "Overall great"

Pros: "Lovely, friendly crew!"
Cons: "No seat selection available on line, so stuffed in the back. No place for luggage. No soft drinks on flight. Mexican chips??? What’s that about?"

Cons: "You could have warned about the 2nd bag fee! I paid $80 for having a 2nd bag!"

Cons: "We got off an hour and a half late as there was an audio technical problem."

Pros: "Flying Air NZ is a pleasure. You guys generally do a very good job. Even though the flight left late I was impressed with the Pilot announcement to allow connecting passengers to leave the plane first, and all others remain seated."
Cons: "The flight left late, making it stressful to catch my connecting flight in Auckland."

Cons: "Basic flight with no frills"

Cons: "Entertainment and seat comfort"

Pros: "on time, crew were friendly"
Cons: "have to pay to watch movie"

Cons: "$80 baggage fees for luggage over 7 kg. I wasn’t aware of high price and luggage weight restriction until I was at airport"

Pros: "None"
Cons: "When I booked this fly, no one tell me check in luggage has to be charged"

Pros: "the staffs and the boarding experienve"

Pros: "Appreciated check in staff who professionally answered our requests re routine steps to process check in. Only regretted that we weren’t aware (perhaps we missed announcement) that my husband who is still recovering from knee surgery was not aware we could have boarded from the forward entrance and avoid the descent and ascent via rear entry."

Pros: "Agents went above and beyond to help. Wish I had names because I was REAL impressed at how much they helped to get our bags checked. My son had purchased my ticket and not bought luggage voucher. They helped me get online and buy voucher. Would recommend airline to anyone traveling in that part of world."
Cons: "It was a very positive experience. No complaints. I will definately fly Air New Zealand when that is an option."

Cons: "The lack of communication with everything from queuing to board, to food allowance."

Pros: "Crew solid n friendly enough"
Cons: "Seats too tight n cramped"

Pros: "Inflight magazine was just the right length for the flight time"
Cons: "Cookie was stale and coffee was nothing special... but that’s typical of all airlines"

Cons: "I was connecting on an International flight on same airline, New Zealand Air, and did not see where I was required to pay for our one checked bags for my wife and I. When I checked in on line I was not notified that I should buy the checked backs online so assumed one bag each was free. Instead we were charged $nz120. This is not acceptable and I would like a refund. Please help on this request. Thank you."

Pros: "The regional flights are nice and quick with no frills or complications. Everyone is in one cabin and you can quickly board using kiosks at the gate."
Cons: "You might want to bring a book on this flight or something as their in-flight video and adverts are all you'll really see in terms of entertainment."

Cons: "Bathroom did not work, food was not so tasty"

Pros: "Cabin crew was fantastic! Inflight experience was woderful."
Cons: "Airport personnel were very unhelpful. When I asked them a question, they told me to come back later. I came back at the time they said to and they told me they don’t have time for me. I need to come back another time. I went to another gate agent and she told be to go downstairs to the check in counter for help. That would have taken 2 hours. I called customer service and they answered my question quickly. I just wanted to know if I would be charged a fee to change my flight."

Pros: "Flying over the country of NZ."
Cons: "Crying kids."

Pros: "Attendants were friendly. The agent at the gate rerouted my flight after my initial flight was delayed. She explained she did that so that I could make my international connection in time."

Pros: "Quickest boarding ever - Have hardly seen an airline having people board through the rear entry Super fun safety video All-in-all a great experience"

Cons: "Nothing I can think of. Very happy with the flight."

Cons: "Air New Zealand needs to manage double door boarding a little differently - a ticket checker needs to be at the split point - to streams of passengers trying to find their seat in opposite directions just doesn't work."

Pros: "A little cramped on the domestic flight, but for the hour or so from Christchurch to Auckland, it was acceptable. I was impressed that ANZ did a quick meal service on this short flight. The crew was great - very friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Close quarters between seats."

Pros: "We did not use the food or entertainment"

Pros: "Everything, felt safe"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Unlike the American flights, they actually served a light snack (not pretzels and nuts) and offered complementary wine and beer. The ride was pleasant."
Cons: "For the economy passengers, we had to go down a flight of stairs onto the tarmac and then back up on a portable stairs to get onto the plane. The same was true when we were deboarding the plane. This has more to do with the airports than with Air New Zealand."

Cons: "The boarding process at Addis Ababa airport was late, slow and very disorganized. Once on the plane, it was very chaotic as passengers did not wait for people to put bags in the overhead bin without passing by, and not all overhead bins were open for loading. Please control this process better."

Pros: "They were very supportive.. Thanks."

Pros: "Seats comfortable. Entertainment was extensive. Food was good!"

Pros: "The flight was incredibly comfortable, and Emirates reputation is well warranted. Service was impeccable and food was great. Seats were great, especially in business."
Cons: "Overall business class was great, however I didn’t like the placement of the remote at my left shoulder. I hit rabdom buttons a few times and it changed the channels and I would have to re-search for the movie I was watching. Everything else was absolutely perfect."

Pros: "Ease of checkin"
Cons: "Delayed take off Delayed baggage retrieval’s"

Pros: "This was operated by Qantas. Nice movie/music setup. Crew friendly"
Cons: "Food plentiful but meat was tough and pretty instututional in taste. Couldn’t eat but half of any meal"

Cons: "By the time the food cart reaches rear zones , there are not much left to choose from. It should be better managed so all passengers have a chance to pick the food of their choice."

Cons: "I don’t like that there is not and ovo-lacto vegetarian option available to people like me."

Pros: "Nice airplane, good entertainment, good food, ontime service, pleasant cabin crew"

Pros: "EVERYTHING"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "I flew round trip on their flagship Airbus 380 from Toronto to Dubai, about 13-14 hours. Crew was great, plenty of food and drinks, about 3x meals, lost track of how many drink runs, maybe 5x. It was almost too much food & drink! The in-flight entertainment was great, touch screen was fantastic, USB port, even power outlet, on back of seat, plenty of entertainment choices from movies, to video games, to trivia, I even got a kick out of all the camera's mounted on the outside of the plane with all the flight tracking details available on screen, plenty of bathrooms. Its such a big plane it didn't even feel like you are flying. I'm 6'4" so I always choose an aisle seat so i can at least stretch one leg out, the crew was even mindful not to bump my elbow or even my leg when it was extended out into the aisle while i was asleep...which was more than accommodating to something I shouldn't have been doing! Overall Excellent, I wish every airline was like Emirates. They're bringing back the old school service and class airlines used to be like. I know people don't dress up while they air travel anymore, but I'll be dressing up the next time I fly Emirates! ;)"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."

Pros: "Food was good and not over salted like most airplane foods"
Cons: "Need more recently released US movies Options are so few Not enough African movie either"

Pros: "Decent food, real utensils, free wine, excellent entertainment system, free limited wifi. Try finding that on a budget airline"

Pros: "also good. Just not as good as our first leg."

Pros: "The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. The plane itself was clean and there were plenty of bathrooms. It was great to have two free meals, drinks and entertainment making a 10 hour flight go by faster. I love the eye masks and ear plugs to make sleeping on a plane easier. All around success and would fly again with them!"
Cons: "On the flight home the crew seemed a little confused who was in charge of my row. I had to go get myself the customs forms and a pen. Also the front of the plan was extremely hot compared to the back."

Pros: "Seat was really comfortable and leg room was excellent. In flight entertainment will keep you busy."
Cons: "Nothing. Emirates are the best!"

Cons: "I checked in online, but when I went to drop my bags there was about a 20 min delay. the agent needed to make 2 phone calls and conference with 2 supervisors. All this without letting me know what was going on."

Cons: "The connection in Dubai was horrible. The 30 minute bus ride is so ridiculous. It's very difficult to even find the Business Class Lounge. No greeters. No signage. Terrible service. Even pajamas are not provided in Business Class --- unlike on Qatar Airways."

Pros: "I loved the layout of the plain and its size. It can fit a lot of people and you can definitely see that Emirates prides in their airline."
Cons: "We were sitting in row 36 (D,E,F,G). Everything was fine until we realized there was a leak in the plane. On take off and landing the A/C leaked all over our clothes and seats. When we reacted and stood up, the flight attendant screamed at us and told us to sit down. Afterwards, the flight attendant asked us what was wrong and she had realized that the AC had leaked on us. All she did was put towels on our seat and walked away. For at least 10 minutes I had to raise a towel to catch the water from dripping onto our heads during lift off and landing."

Pros: "Pretty uniforms and good service: Polite, gentle, helpful"

Pros: "They were on time and excellent service all the way. It couldn't have been better."

Pros: "The plane. The thoughtfulness of the crew. My seat's location. I was lucky to be in the front center! The flight information display. Flying at night across the Tasman Sea it was as though we were stationary (apart from a little vibration as we crossed the Southern Alps). Besides, the Air Bus is so quiet (comparatively). Oh yes. One other thing: the fare."
Cons: "We are vegetarians (not vegan). I wasn't keen on the chicken/fish option. But I didn't complain."

Cons: "Headphone was taken by crew the moment plane landed."

Pros: "Really comfortable, good service."

Pros: "F"

Pros: "Very good services by Emirates, flight was on time, leg room between seats was sufficient, meals were good and staff behavior was good"

Pros: "Fantastic!!! Plane had a number of empty seats. Seemed to be a very quick flight."

Pros: "The economy was just as well served as Business Class. There were 22 different countries represented in the crew on the flight. We were served a hot meal and a cocktail. Also, had more leg room than normal. Very efficient boarding system, as well."
Cons: "There wasn't anything about the flight to and from Sydney to New Zealand we didn't like."

Pros: "I requested a blanket for my Son and was told there was none available....."
Cons: "On disembarking I notice a various overhead compartments with bags full of blankets. Why was a deny a simple Blanket? This is unacceptable in an airline that praises itself to be one with the best customer services.......Bad, really bad...."

Pros: "Service, food and entertainment"
